    A proxy server like ISA / Forefront TMG will offer you that sort of facility

    Otherwise, user education and sanctions if they break the rules.

        Yes, but how would you turn that off out of work hours and back on again the next day?

            TMG (as with most other products) should not be on a DC, although you can install it on a RODC (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...-fd2c941ad970/ for more info)

            Ideally it should have 2 LAN cards and act as an interface between your LAN and the internet, but IIRC there is an option to use one LAN card

                Don't know what type of network equipment you have but cisco routers/firewalls have time based ACL's which would do what you need.

                  you can get somefirealls that will do this too
                  Fortigates can do it.

                  TMG is a heavy solution - don't just dive blindly into installing it..

                      TMG can do it in a Single-NIC setup but there are various other limitations to a Single-NIC setup that I wouldn't recommend.

                      TMG is a bit overkill purely for web filtering one site though. I'd get HR involved here and make sure it is clear to staff that using social networking sites during office hours isn't acceptable. It's always a bad idea (IME) to resort to technical solutions to cure behavioural issues. Some tech savvy user or relative/significant other of user will look for ways to get around the restriction (E.g. proxy bypass websites) unless there are documented consequences.

                        You should be able to use TMG as well as any other Web filtering that supports HTTPS inspection.
